Good morning dream chasers πŸ‘‹πŸΌ!
.
Wow, 2.5 weeks have gone by since our first @BigSmallBusiness conference - can you believe it?!
.
For those of you that attended the conference - are you still experiencing that little catch in your chest? That feeling of inspiration, adrenaline and a 'raring to go' outlook?!
.
Us too!
.
Post BSB we took a little time off to settle into the emotions and aftermath of the conference. It was more inspiring, entrepreneurial and love-filled than we could have dreamt and we were overjoyed to meet each and every one of you there. There will never be another first Big Small Business conference and YOU were there from the beginning.
.
Big Small Business is first and foremost a community, whether you join us here on Instagram, in our newsletter or at our conferences, we are thrilled to welcome you and help you to chase your dreams!
.
We are SO excited to share a little video of the @BigSmallBusiness conference which the amazing Lauren of @APieceOfTheParty put together for us.
.
Seeing everyone's smiles and note-scribbling takes us right back!
.
We'd love to know - for those who came to Big Small Business, and those who are part of the community, what is one dream you are chasing right now? Big or small?
.
For us, our BIG dream is mapping out the over-arching impact we want this community to have in your life ✨#BigSmallBusiness #BSB2017

Moments before it all began . . . ✨!
.
We can't quite believe that Saturday has been & gone!
.
When we dreamt up Big Small Business, the conference and community, our vision didn't equal even a fraction of the magic which you were a part of on Saturday.
.
(And truly, we thought we had a pretty special vision already!)
.
THANK YOU, from the very bottom of our hearts, for being a part of the very first Big Small Business conference, and for being a cornerstone of this blossoming community.
.
It is our hope and wish that via Saturday's event, a spark of inspiration was ignited for you, which you will follow in pursuit of your own Big Small Business dream. Whether you joined us in person, or followed along on social.
.
We have SO much more to share with you from the conference, but for now, we wanted to share our gratitude with you our inspiring community.
.
We have incredibly full and happy hearts.
.
If you'd like to follow along the journey of Saturday's event click > #BigSmallBusiness and #BSB2017 to have a little peruse πŸ‘€ | We are taking a few days to process it all but rest assured we will be back with more very soon . . . ✨✨✨!

Morning!
.
Today is the day! We can't quite believe that the first Big Small Business conference is finally here!
.

We're so looking forward to meeting you all for an incredible day ahead!
.

But first. . . Coffee β˜•οΈ! #BigSmallBusiness #TodayIsTheDay #ButFirstCoffee

Wow!
.
We can't quite believe that the time has come! The very first Big Small Business conference is in TWO days, and, if you're one of our lovely guests , you'll be right there in amongst all of the magic of it ✨
.
When we open the doors on Saturday, we know that it is the beginning of a truly INCREDIBLE day.
.
We know our guests are in the company of some pretty amazing people, including our wonderful speakers (like @NeedleKnits's Lizzie seen here ☝🏼) and all their fellow attendees! We've seen the guest list πŸ˜‰
.
We can't wait for those of you coming to listen and learn from some of the most inspiring people we know.
.
Lizzie's story is a truly inspiring one - Needle has fast become one of the most exciting new fashion brands to come out of Britain.
.
Following a career chapter working in product development at fashion giant L.K. Bennett, Lizzie found a design partner in Emma Baressi, formerly of Burberry, and decided to pursue her dream of creating a fashion label of her own.
.
Specialising in beautiful knitwear pieces to wear all year round, a Needle piece is instantly recognisable for its elevated quality and clever use of colour.
.
Needle has developed a loyal customer following, as well as cultivating relationships with a core selection of quality stockists, including an exclusive collaboration with international fashion retailer @Anthropologie in 2016.
.
We can't wait to hear Lizzie's 'career pivot' story on Saturday. If you are attending - hooray! We can't wait to share it with you too.
.
If you're not able to make this weekend's conference, stay tuned to our Instagram page all day and be sure to sign up to our newsletter for details from the conference as well as upcoming news. We will be virtually sharing with you as much as possible ✨

This incredible photo of two of our BSB speakers gives us ALL the good feels!
.
@hannahsbnb founder Hannah, and @blossomy.oga founder Gemma are entrepreneurs in their own right, both running beautiful successful businesses.

Much like this image, Hannah and Gemma have also collaborated on something entirely new and magical, launching wellness retreats which combine Gemma's 13+ years of experience as a yoga teacher, and Hannah's phenomenal hospitality and mindful cooking.
.
Collaboration and creative partnerships can propel a business forward, and Hannah and Gemma will be sharing how they've found this to be the case in their talk on April 1st.
.
If you'd like to listen to these inspiring women speak, alongside our other amazing panelists, pull the trigger on your ticket for Big Small Business - bigsmallbusiness.co.uk or via the link in our bio ✨

Meet Sarah, founder of the gorgeous @PodAndPip 🌿
.
Sarah previously worked in a very different world, to that of her beautiful floristry business!
.
In her life pre-@PodAndPip Sarah worked in corporate telecommunications for 14 years, managing research and customer service improvement projects.
.
With a love for the countryside and all things botanical, Sarah decided it was time for a fresh start ✨and floristry was beckoning 🌿
.
Pod & Pip is proof that if you LOVE something, no matter how far removed it may feel from your 9-5, you can pursue your dream business.
.
Sarah will be speaking in our 'How To Pivot Your Career' talk on April 1st.
.
We know you'll love getting to know Sarah's journey, and those of her fellow panelists.
.
Do you harbour a passion you'd love to go full-time with? #BigSmallBusiness

Do you know what makes you brave?
.
It's more simple than you may think.
.
Being brave is simply co-existing with your fear.
.
You don't need to be *fearless*.
.
In fact, we say: "welcome fear!"
.
As Elizabeth Gilbert shares in her book Big Magic, fear can join you for your *road trip*, just don't let it drive. Isn't that an awesome visual?
.
For us at Big Small Business this mindset shift has been huge. If you're not restricted by your fear, can you imagine what you could do?!
.
Send the email. Make that investment. Say "hello" to your hero.
.
If you're scared and you DO IT ANYWAY?! We believe you are unstoppable.
.
Will you join us on April 1st? Be quick to snap up your ticket if you haven't already! The conference is less than two weeks away and we want to save you a perfect seat ✨ #BigSmallBusiness #MondayMotivation #CommunityFirst | Ph. by the wonderful @sarahloufrancis
